There are lots of choice Primulas in bloom during spring. You can really appreciate some of the choice ones by putting them in individual pots and containers.
Primula Francisca – an unusual yellow/green frilly flowerer. Happy in limy and ordinary soils in part shade. Attractive to butterflies and moths.
This frost hardy container is filled with Primula Auriculas. These are hardy alpine plants with are suitable for growing in the garden, but are as happy in pots. The varieties in this pot are Lee Paul, Peggy and which are all Alpine Auriculas and Nymph which is a double auricula. They flower from March – May and are highly scented. Some enthusiasts build ‘Auricula Theatres’ to display their plants; outdoor shelves or step ladders can perform the same task in smaller spaces!
